Things to do with Coffee Grounds After Brewing Coffee

What do you do with the coffee grounds after brewing coffee? Most of us throw them in the trash, but Life Hackery blog writes that they're actually worth keeping for other things. For example:

Fridge Deodorizer – Storing different types of food inside the fridge can produce a nasty mixture of odors. Remove those pungent smells with a bowl filled with coffee grounds. Place the bowl inside your fridge and your coffee ground deodorizer will gradually absorb all unwanted scents. If your fridge is packed with stored food, just add more grounds and a few drops of vanilla to your deodorizer so that it can absorb more odors.

Skin Exfoliant – Rubbing your skin with coffee ground extract seems silly but it is actually a good idea. The extract removes dead skin cells, which results in better-looking skin. It can save you hundreds of dollars since this simple product can practically replacesseveral pricey sessions with your dermatologist.

Alex, thanks for the article. I didn't know that there were so many different uses for coffee grounds. Does it matter which type of grounds I use? Will my face be more exfoliated if I use coffee grounds from Hawaii? I'm just curious....
